Abortion has been one of this country\'s most controversial
topic on hand. But if one sees the constitutional infringement to
women by the restriction of abortion, the torment to the unwanted
child and the anguish society has to sustain,then this topic would not
be so debatable. Too many people do not see the cause and effect of
not being able to have abortions.

All human beings are given some inalienable right guaranteed
by the Constitution. One of those privilege is the right to pursue
happiness. A baby can sometimes disrupt a woman\'s pursuit of
happiness. Even if she decides to give it up for adoption, she still
has the burden of carrying the fetus for nine months. Having the
option to perform an abortion can solve that obstacle. Taking away
this right would be invading on a woman\'s constitutional liberty.

The unwanted child also suffers. Most of the time the mother
of the unwanted child is very young and inexperienced or too poor to
take care of the child. The child is usually malnourished, has no
medical care, and gets very little attention or love. The foster care
system isn\'t any better. Only a small percentage of the children are
adopted by suitable parents. But the rest remain in the foster care
system, where there is little or no personal care. In both cases, the
child has a poor education because of the lack of attention and
discipline. He grows up to be unproductive individual or a menace to
society. Many get involved in drugs and crimes. These individuals are
also very violent, lacking morality due small amount of care they
received themselves. In the long run, not only does the child suffer
but also society, who has to tolerate his violent behavior and crimes.

An abortion can be seen as putting the child out of misery
while he doesn\'t have the ability to reason or fear. In short,
abortion allows a woman to retain her constitutional rights, it
relieves a would be suffering child out of his distress and
it establishes a safer and more peaceful society. On these grounds,
abortion should be kept legal, and even encouraged to specific
individuals, for benefits to all of us.
